This one is from Ellusionist and is a pretty dope deck. 10% of the sales from this deck go to IUCN, which is super rad.

The box is matte black cardstock with gold foil printing, with some really cool and subtle printing on the left and right flaps of the box top - such a unique treatment, I love it.

The overall design is a minimalist and sort of geometric style, Ellusionist says this: "Like something you'd expect to see on a discarded barrel of methylamine." and they're not wrong. That is almost precisely what the design theme for this deck evokes, but bee themed. The card back is a hypnotic honeycomb motif. The pips and face cards are treated in this simple but subtly brilliant angular design style that is just so intriguing. The yellow print on every other card next to the white on the in between cards is a really unique and subtle yet outstanding design choice, as well.

The actual print and gloss treatment for the deck is stellar, too. Referred to as Luxury-pressed E7, I haven't been able to find any real true information on what that specifically means on my limited search. But the cards feel a little thicker than your typical deck of playing cards and the gloss is super slick with this subtle texture. It makes the deck both super smooth and slick but easy to grip, grab, and hold onto.

The only negative thing I will say about this deck is that there's no mention of Wu-Tang.

(no, I don't know why I didn't take individual photos of all of each of the face cards this time lol)
